So I've been off since last Tuesday afternoon, and I've been in holiday/birthday prep mode. I've found some awesome Pinsperation for Micah's woodland themed birthday party coming up this Saturday. I've got an entire board dedicated to the theme on Pinterest, and as you know I've been a little obsessed with all things woodland since I decided that would be the theme for his nursery. To this day, this post is the most read on my blog. So I guess there are some other lovers of all things woodland out there, too? Y'all never comment, but you frequently hit me from Google searches, so I know you are out there! Well, keep reading because I have a few more things and links I've found online if you'd like to use them.
At any rate, as a working mom, I've got a lot on my plate to clean the house, prep for the party, and work full time. I've got a list a mile long of things I want to do, but I'm not sure which of the things on my party list are going to actually come to fruition by Saturday. I guess we'll see.
Here are a few of the things that I have gotten accomplished while I've been off this weekend for Thanksgiving.
Several weeks ago on a recent girls' night out, I went to a place called Paint-a-Piece. I designed and made Micah's plate there while hanging out with my MOPS buddies! You design the object, they fire the painted piece, and you come pick it up. I'm pretty happy with how it all turned out.
This was the end result which I should probably go buy string, hole punch, and hang it properly.
Instead, I taped it to the wall. This was easier for me, and I am already one step closer to being decorated by Saturday morning!
My last project for the night is tackling these owl goodie bags for the kiddos out of some other scrapbooking paper and clear bags from Dollar Tree. What do ya think? Does it look like an owl?
Anyway, that's where I am on the party process for now. I'm hoping that everything on my magical list actually gets accomplished. And now maybe I gave you some more inspiration for your own woodland themed birthday party!
